Apprenticeship Carolina™ has been an instrumental aspect for further education of people in our operation. Since we started up our operation, we’ve developed an apprenticeship program for our maintenance employees, to take them over the next 3 years and develop their skills and competencies and then also reward them compensation associated with incremental steps of improvement.
This is a a tremendous growth opportunity for our people and a great benefit
to Horsehead Corporation to know and understand that we fully train and certify
people in the tasks that they need to be doing. Competency is critical – from a safety, from an environmental standpoint, from customer satisfaction and operational results. Apprenticeship Carolina™ is a key partner moving forward
